Introduction

Large Hadron Collider (LHC) has been running successfully at a 7 TeV center-of-mass energy. With continued running and eventually reaching 14 TeV, interesting new physics is highly anticipated by both experimentalists and theorists. LHC physics will be one of the most important fields in particle physics in the next decades.

In order to study the sophisticated processes in hadron machines, we are organizing a 3-day school on MadGraph for LHC physics simulation in National Taiwan University (NTU) from 25 May (Fri) to 27 May (Sun). The lecturers include Prof. Kaoru Hagiwara (KEK), Dr. Johan Alwall (FNAL) and Dr. Claude Duhr (Zurich). We encourage graduate students, postdocs, young researchers and those who are working on the collider physics and eager to learn some simulation techniques to participate this MadGraph School.

For increasing learning efficiency, the number of participants is limited to be around 20 persons. We will also arrange some tutors for various assists during the school. The details, timetable and program of the school will be distributed later to all the participants after further discussions with the lecturers.

We will provide local expenses, including accommodations, meals and local transportation, to the participants. Due to our limited fund, we are regretted not be able to provide travel support for international participants.

No registration fee is required in the school. The accommodations, meals and local transportation will be covered.

We welcome and look forward to your participation. We wish based on the learning in the school, you can make a great contribution in high energy physics.
